Busy busy week preparing for C2E2, but there are still new releases to mention. So here we have a few of my suggestions for the week of April 10, 2012!
Excellent Bio Pic starring the amazing Meryl Streep. While I may have wished for Viola Davis (or Glenn Close) to win this years Academy Award, there's no denying that Meryl give an excellent performance and transforms on screen. I recommend the movie to everyone!
Hugo fan may enjoy this little 110 year old film! ^_^
No original hand-colored copies of A Trip to the Moon (Le Voyage dans la Lune - 1902), by Georges Méliès, had been known to survive until one was miraculously found in Spain in the mid-1990s, but in a fragmentary condition thought too fragile to handle for either viewing or restoration. In 2010, three experts in worldwide film restoration - Lobster Films, and two non-profit entities, Groupama Gan Foundation for Cinema and Technicolor Foundation for Cinema Heritage - launched one of the most complex and ambitious film restoration projects ever to bring an original, colored version of Méliès masterpiece back 110 years after its first release. Using the most advanced digital technologies now available, the team reassembled and restored the fragments of the 13,375 frames.
Slipstream by Bonnie Raitt
A Wasteland Companion by M. Ward
New Life by Monica
Let's Get to What's Real by Elliott Yamin
This is a pretty neat looking game! Love when games find clever ways to interact with the real world (Augmenter/Alternate Reality), like a PC game I played once called Missing: Since January. Hop over to Amazon and watch the videos and you'll see what I mean. I'm sure it's not perfect, but it's looks pretty cool. Oh, and I should also mention that it's a spin-off from the beloved Fatal Frame series!!
A visceral 3D horror tale unfolds before your eyes: The Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir game invites players to experience supernatural thrills they won't soon forget, using the built-in camera functions and augmented-reality features of the Nintendo 3DS system. The game's mysterious storyline involves a girl named Maya who has been hiding in the darkness of an old house, cursed by a malevolent woman in black. To free Maya from the curse, players must use the "diary of faces" - a 16-page AR notebook included with the game - to view ghostly images and interact with the world Maya is trapped in. The Nintendo 3DS system becomes the Camera Obscura in players' hands and is capable of revealing the supernatural and dispelling evil spirits. The lines between reality and fiction blur in this chilling horror adventure.
That's all for this week!
